it to us, but at this point no plans for us to sort of get a peek inside that room and listen in on that conversation. although we hope that there will be some kind of a readout to give us some indication as to what the two politicians discussed. >> you know, dan, oftentimes people say these meetings are just to make nice or to have a good photo op. in this particular case, not unlike other cases, there's talk about the potential of a position, maybe a high-level position, maybe cabinet level, in the obama administration for governor romney. and that's not so far off base. i mean, we have plenty of history to show that politicians have crossed over. just take a look at your screen. this is a great example of former presidents who have reached across the aisle to take high-level members of the opposite party into their very close cabinet. so we have any idea if we might see one more of these screens added today with governor romney? >> you know, no, not as far as we're hearing from those close to governor romney, and, of course, aides here at the white house saying absolutely n

cnn by phone today how his organization is looking to see what the u.s. does. >> i think the egyptians are waiting for some support from the united states in order to make an -- we expect to have an outcome of this today. >> you have so many moving parts in all of this. there is a discrepancy, hamas saying this was a cease-fire, but israel is call iing it a ca down period. and here is israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, moments before word came. >> no country would tolerate rocket attacks against its cities and against its civilians. israel cannot tolerate such attacks. if a long-term solution can be put in place through diplomatic means, then israel would be a willing partner to such a solution. but if stronger military action proves necessary to stop the constant gara constant barrage of rockets, israel will not hesitate to do what is necessary to defend our people. >> the most surprising thing for the palestinians is always talking about the israeli needs, about israeli security, about israel -- without talking about the palestinian needs, about the palestinian security, ab

more than i used to. >> thought so. >> but it is like anything, when a mechanic leaves the garage, i hope he stops thinking about the engine. when the mailman goes home, i hope he stops thinking about the mail. when we say good night, i mean see you later. >> president obama has very little time to savor the victory of his because he's scheduled to head back to washington in the next hour. jill dougherty is at the white house for us right now. jill, what is on tap for the president? once he returns right there? >> reporter: yeah, he comes back, what, in about three hours, three and a half hours. and, you know, brooke, he's still got that desk, still got the same desk, and it is filled with many of the same things that he had before he went away to chicago to watch the election. and that is, of course, i mean, you would have to say, number one, bring the country together, and that is just, you know, huge, whether that can happen is one giant question. and it is tied, you know, to the second issue, which is the fiscal cliff that we keep referring to. $7 trillion worth of potential tax

no home anymore. our joe johns is following us in washington on this story. but what he is following is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn. joe, what are you finding out about this? >> well, it's a very interesting turn, don. as you said, in response to the super storm, the governor has issued a directive. this is for misplaced voters that can submit ballot applications by e-mail or by fax to the county clerk. the clerk sends them a ballot and then they have to return that ballot by about 8:00 p.m. on tuesday. it sounds highly unusual. to some, it may sound off the wall. but the fact of the matter is, in an emergency situation, there is some precedent for it. the united states actually has a program for military and overseas voters to basically do very similar things. so chris christie is taking a page from that pramt aogram and trying to find out how new jersey voters are not dis

single one of us, and you can bet there's plenty going on behind the scenes. this past hour we heard from the president in the east room of the white house basically announcing he's inviting leaders from both houses of congress and from both political parties to meet with him at the white house next friday. just a couple of minutes ago, we heard the president say he's open to compromise and open to new ideas, but there's one point the president is sticking to -- higher taxes for people making higher incomes. take a listen. >> i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. i'm not going to ask students and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me, making over $250,000 aren't a asked to pay a dime more in taxes. >> two hours before we saw the president, we saw the house speaker, republican, john boehner, said quote, everything on the revenue side and on the sp spending side has to be looked at but when it comes to specifics he put the ball firmly in barack obama's court. >> i don't want to box myself in or anyone else in. i think it is impo

$250,000 or less. >> it is too important for washington to screw this up. now is the time for us to work on what we all agree to, which is let's keep middle class taxes low. tweet, use the hashag my2k or e-mail, post it on a member of congress' facebook wall, do what it takes to communicate a sense of urgency. i'll sign this bill as soon as congress sends it my way. i got to repeat, i've got a pen. i'm ready to sign it. so -- >> the president wants republicans to first agree to keep the middle class tax cuts, and then he wants to move on and tackle the rest of the fiscal cliff problems. do not count on groundswell of republican support. in fact, one republican, congressman tom cob, proposed a similar idea and conservative republicans shot him down. we'll get to that here in a moment. quite a moment today. also president obama is meeting today with 14 key ceos to try to get their support for keeping those middle class tax cuts. the ceos are from huge, huge companies here. macy's, home depot, pfizer, comcast, marriott, at&t. you see the signs here, just to name a few. on the republ

petraeus' biographer about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. let's take a listen. >> i don't know if a lot of you heard this, but the cia an annex had taken a couple prisoner and they think the attack on the consulate was an attempt to get the prisoners back. that's still being vetted. >> where did she hear that? did it come from david petraeus and do we know if her claim was true, the cia was holding captives inside a consular annex in benghazi? >> right, ted. this raises serious issues. she clearly said in the video the information she was sharing on libya and the cia holding prisoners there hadn't been vetted. so that means she is sharing something with -- that she heard with a public audience. that's concerning because they have to ask, what is your source? is the source of all of her information david petraeus? given her extraordinary access to the former director of the cia, it would have been a reasonable assumption. but, again, her access to him was not in any way in an official capacity. though she did tell me she was working with the general on writing a

. >> senator, all this talking, will you tell us, tell americans if you're in the loop, if you are privy, tell us who is talking to who in these fiscal cliff negotiations and where are the talks happening? >> you know, i'm not included in those talks. i've been talking with the folks in my state in kentucky, though, and they're not interested in raising taxes, they think it is a bad idea for the economy. the only way to have a stimulus to the private sector is to leave more money in the private sector. the other thing that folks in kentucky don't understand is that why is it a fiscal cliff to cut spending? most people in our state think we're spending too much money up here and we should cut spending. in fact, the majority of congress voted for this sequester. why was it a good idea a year ago and now it is not a good idea. >> on spending and spending cuts, you may have something in common with the president, which i want to get to. you mentioned the people in your great state of kentucky and, look, we know and we're all hoping they're out and about shopping, it is holiday season, and in terms

're learning more about the white house plan to deal with the fiscal cliff. break it down for us. >> reporter: right. this is the plan that secretary -- treasury secretary timothy geithner took up to capitol hill yesterday. it calls for $1.6 trillion in tax increases over a ten-year period more than republicans had anticipated. in addition to that, $400 billion in spending cuts that will come later. much of that not really specified. we're looking at entitlements such as medicare. and then the plan also includes $50 billion in stimulus spending. democrats see this really as sort of the opening salvo in these negotiations. early on in this process, both sides appear to show some level of optimism that this would get done. in the last few days and certainly yesterday it just seems like both sides are so far apart, it's not unusual for us to see this kind of posturing and other negotiations, tough negotiations over the last four years or so. you'll see things build up whether it appears that it's going to get done. then they fall apart. in the end it does happen. the hope is that that would happ

. israelis are using twitter and youtube to show the world. should the government really use social media to help get its message across? talk about a way with words. listen to former mississippi governor republican haley barbour, as he gives blunt and colorful advice to the gop. >> the ground game is really important, and we have to be -- i mean, we've got to give our political organizational activity, you know, a very serious proctology exam. i think that's the only -- >> oh, yeah. and they say twinkies can last forever. but the company that makes them may not last all that long. the baker strike that could turn off the ovens at hostess.

see it picking off targets right above us. i remember one particular barrage that went past, we were laying on the ground, just looking up in the sky and you could see puffs of smoke from where it was picking off the rockets and it was at least a dozen rockets that came by that were picked off and, of course, some of them do make it through. but the worst of times, these barrages can be quite bad and they can be quite scary. for the people on the ground, especially for the children, who are witnessing this year, in these areas, deb. >> what is so fascinating is that you talk about israel says it has -- it is firing in retaliation and in order to wipe out the stockpiles of these rockets and they're launching the ground offensive, apparently in order to get to the site of the launchpads. have you seen any of the -- any of the israeli forces that have been called up by any chance? >> reporter: oh, certainly. if you go around the border area, you will see a massive military buildup. we were just here, tens of thousands of reservists are on stand by. tens of thousands of troops have alrea
